Itinerary: Day 1

Mexico City - Archaeological Site of Tula de Allende – Querétaro

Only two hours before Mexico City is the archaeological site of Tula, the capital and the ceremonial center of the Toltecs, another high culture of Mexico.

The main feature of the site are the four-meter-high stone statues that you can marvel at up close.
In nearby colorful and colonial Querétaro, an essential contribution was made to the independence of Mexico. Details will be explained to you on your guided city tour.

Day 2

Querétaro – Penjamo – Guanajuato

On the way to Guanajuato, your destination for the day, stop at a hacienda after lunch (not included) to hear explanations about life on a farm and get a taste of tequila production. You should not miss a tasting of the typical Mexican drink.

At the end of the afternoon you will arrive in Guanajuato, the destination of the day. The old colonial city enchants visitors with its narrow, winding streets, unique tunnel system, and eventful history. Learn more about it on a city tour.

Day 3

Guanajuato - Dolores Hidalgo - San Miguel de Allende

After breakfast, visit a silver mine whose history is closely related to Guanajuato. Today on the Route of Independence you will visit the city of Dolores Hidalgo, which was named after one of the leaders of the Mexican independence movement in the early 19th century.

In the afternoon you will arrive in San Miguel de Allende, which has been considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world for years. On a city tour, marvel at the Gothic-style cathedral in the center of the colorful city, based on the Cologne Cathedral.

Day 5

Bernal - Querétaro - Mexico City

The Bernal landmark is one of the 13 wonders of Mexico, the third largest monolith (freestanding rock) in the world. If you want, you can climb this 300 meter high rock at about 50 meters. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the surroundings. The view makes up for the effort of the climb.

After these impressions, you will be taken back to Mexico City in the afternoon.
